The Baker Gurvitz Army - Baker Gurvitz Army

Did you know that Ginger Baker hooked up with the Gurvitz brothers in the mid-70s? Do you know who the Gurvitz brothers are? I still have no idea who the Gurvitz brothers are, but they flesh out a decent band. It's a weird thing when your drummer is the most famous guy in the band (and yes, the album is a little drum-heavy both in the mix and in the number of drum solos) but The Baker Gurvitz Army is a surprisingly fully-realized band. This is a great hidden gem of 1970s blues rock.
